CUWiP 2018, Oxford, UK

The Oxford Women in Physics Society is excited to host the fourth Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) UK in the Department of Physics at Oxford University after the huge success of the events in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The goal is to help undergraduates who identify as women continue in physics through participation in a conference focused on their development as scientists and showcasing options for their educational and professional futures.

The conference will enable attendees to meet, network with, and be inspired by successful women in physics with whom they can share experiences, advice and ideas.


"This has been an extremely valuable and inspiring experience - I feel more confident in what I am able to achieve, I know about more opportunities available to me and I have had my passion in physics heightened."

The programme includes

  • Presentations by distinguished physicists on their cutting-edge research and personal career paths
  • Panels of experts to answer questions on graduate study and career opportunities outside academia that are open to students with a physics degree
  • Workshops on effective assertiveness and on successful marketing through CVs, cover letters, and interviews
  • Tours of several laboratories at the University of Oxford and Culham Centre for Fusion Energy
  • Social opportunities for networking


"I feel proud to be a female physicist."
